They’re in a damned if you do damned if you don’t situation right now; usb-c makes sense, especially with government regulation overreach, but I remember people were completely freaking out when they switched to the lightening port, to a strange degree.I’m looking forward to the day when we get a slimmer, sleeker phone that’s fully wireless.
So many Hulu originals (Handmaid's Tale comes to mind) have obvious breakpoints where you can tell where the commercials would have been if you were on the ad-supported plan. This has always made Hulu originals feel cheaper than say HBO, AppleTV+, or even some Netflix originals. Even when the commercials aren't there it feels very much like watching linear TV. That annoys the shit out of me! (Speaking of annoying, thank god Hulu stopped putting logos in the corner of every show!!!)
What is also annoying is the way YouTube will drop an ad in the middle of a monologue. Just when you least expect it.
So, I'm curious which approach Netflix will go with since most of their legacy originals do not have defined breakpoints. Will their future programming take ads into consideration in the editing bay? Will the ads be abrupt? All in all, this all feels very much like Netflix is diluting their reputation and it's hard to imagine them continuing to be able to position themselves as some Emmy and Oscar seeking prestige brand.

"I don't watch anything on YouTube that I'm dying to pay money to watch in glorious 4K."
Yes, 4K drone videos are very cool! I can also find those on Vimeo, which is actually a more appropriate venue to showcase that kind of content.
